Spin-Off Festival 8 is the 8th edition of the Spin-Off Festival, which began May 25, 2018 and ended June 19, 2018. It was announced on May 15, 2018. SOF Tickets returned again. This Spin-Off Festival was special in that it celebrated the 10 year anniversary of when spin-offs were started on July 2nd, 2008 by tvfan95 on tv.com. Much like last year's, it was a very successful and active event, gaining SBC over 5,000 posts.

- Win events such as Jeopardy, Spin-Off & Literature Trivia, Wheel of Fortune, SpongeCraft, Dunces & Dragons, etc. Don't panic if you can't win them though, because: Whoever reaches the Top 5 spots of any event receives SOF Tickets, not just the first place person.
- Ask questions in SpongeBob Whodunnit?, which gives you 5 Tickets. Successfully guessing the culprit will also give you 500 Tickets.
- Compete in mini-games in Glove Universe Rides.
- Win the Lottery during the event, which gives you 400 SOF Tickets.
- Have them as a currency in your Glove Universe Market store.
- Have your spin-off/lit come in the top 10 for the SpongeBoard lists during the event, which gives you 25 SOF Tickets.
- Participate in the SWYAD, which gives you 25 SOF Tickets.
- You can trade your doubloons to get SOF Tickets using Karen's Doubloon to Ticket Converter 4000.
Just like the past three festivals, the Spin-Off/Lit games forum and user store forum were brought back as two exclusive forums, named "Glove Universe Rides" and "Glove Universe Market" respectively, two sub-forums under the Spin-Off Festival 8 forum.

During the event, there were exclusive mini-game topics in the Glove Universe Rides forum, officially made by the staff. These were ways to earn more SOF Tickets. The Daily Spin, Spin-Off Shuffle, Balloon Pop, Ball Throw, and Whack a Character from Spin-Off Festivals 6 and 7 returned, but two new ones were also added.
The Daily Spin
Users had to spin a wheel, which contains the slots: D'oh!, GOSH DARNIT DALE, "You lose, you get nothing, good day sir!", 25 SOF Tickets, 50 SOF Tickets, 75 SOF Tickets, 100 SOF Tickets, 1 Doubloon, 25 Doubloons, 50 Doubloons, 75 Doubloons, or Extra Spin. If you landed on D'oh, GOSH DARNIT DALE or "You lose, you get nothing, good day sir!", you'd get nothing, but if you land on the others, you would get those prizes. You could only spin once a day. Like last year, there are 12 slots on this wheel.
Users had to throw darts at spin-off/lit balloons, containing different SOF Ticket values or nothing inside them at all. Your dart can hit or miss depending on the generator's outcome. You can only play once a day.
Users had to pick a hat identified by the name of a spin-off/lit, and it will be shuffled around, having a prize under it, ranging from SOF Tickets, Doubloons to nothing. You can only play once a day.
Users had to toss a ball at a spin-off/lit bottle, and if it successfully hits, they will get either SOF Tickets, Doubloons, or nothing. You can only play once a day.
Whack a Character
Users had to whack one, two, or three different spin-off/literature characters, and if their hits don't miss, they will either get SOF Tickets, Doubloons, or nothing. You can only play once a day.
Users had to strike a mallet against a target, and their hit can reach five tiers potential tiers, giving them one of the following from lowest to highest: 5 SOF Tickets, 10 SOF Tickets, 15 SOF Tickets, 25 SOF Tickets, or 30 SOF Tickets. You can only play once a day.
The Great Spin-Off Maze
Users had to navigate their way through a maze by rolling dice. There were many hidden traps related to multiple spin-offs and literatures that would slow down progress. The top three users to make it to the end first would receive 1,000 SOF Tickets, 500 SOF Tickets and 250 SOF Tickets respectively. The first place user was Homie, the second place user was Hayden, and the third place user was 4EverGreen. Everyone else got 25 Tickets for participating.
